This recipe is an excellent dish for a party! My friends are asking to make them a pie till this day. I did a couple of different things. I used whole wheat pie crust, I made one pie with chedder and one with guyere cheese yummy! I added shredded carrots, spinache broccoli, red bell peppers, tomatoes. Instead of cayenne pepper I used black pepper. They don't call it garbage quiche for nothing you can add what you like! I'm going to make another pie with the same basic ingredient except I'll add spinach and seafood! Read More

Awesome! My husband (a chef) loved it too. We participate in a veggie co-op and I this week I got some Swiss chard that I didn't know how to use. I put the Swiss chard along with some mushrooms and broccoli in this quiche. Fantastic! I also used cheddar and mozzarella cheese because it was what I had on hand. We had it for dinner tonight and have a whole other quiche that I will take to work for lunch for the week. Lucky me! Even our extremely picky three-year-old ate it without (much) complaint. Definitely a keeper!! Read More

Very tasty quiche - I cooked one and froze the other to eat later. It took a little longer to cook than the recipe called for - about an hour and 15 minutes total. Next time I plan to use more spices - I think I'll chop up a few cloves of garlic and add some red pepper flakes or something. Read More

I cut the recipe in half, used leftover Christmas ham instead of bacon, kept the green onions and tomatoes at the same amount and I used three large eggs. Because I was out of fat free half-n-half, I used fat free evaporated milk. I did throw in one small chopped organic red pepper, a little dijon mustard, onion/garlic powder, and a little Frank's Hot Sauce. We all liked this, though for a half recipe, I'd like to double the cheese next time. This was a great way to use up odds and ends in the fridge and leftover Christmas ham. We ate this with leftover Unbelieveable Rolls, which are also from this site. NOTE: I did scrape out most of the innards from my roma tomatoes so they wouldn't water down or gooey up the quiche. I just cut it in half length-wise, then carefully used a spoon to scrape out the seeds. Read More

I've made a lot of quiches but Hubby said this was the best! I stumbled upon this recipe because I had some Gruyere cheese to use up and this proved to be a real winner. Made it exactly like the recipe except used cherry tomatoes instead of Roma. Also it was done about 10 min. before the recipe said. YUM! Read More

I made this dish for dinner tonight and it was the best quiche I have ever tasted! My husband loved it too. I substituted cheddar cheese & yellow onion and skipped the tomatoes. Also I used 2% milk instead of half and half to lighten it up and it was still delicious. Will definitely make again! Read More

This was a tasty quiche. I did not have Gruyere cheese so I used shredded sharp cheddar instead. I used 1/2 cup diced & sautéed Vidalia onion to replace the green onions too. To cut the fat I used 1% milk. Just for kicks I added about a tablespoon of feta cheese... YUMMY! Read More

I have renamed this. Macho Men Only quiche. This was very good. The only thing I changed was I used fresh aspargus instead of broccoli and added fresh mushrooms which I sauteed in a tiny bit of bacon grease. I also made my own pastry. Highly reccommend this recipe. Read More

Awesome! I made this in two separate bowls and pans using different ingredients (ham cheese onions mushrooms in one and turkey cheese brocc and spinach in the other). I cut the center out of some squares of tin foil and covered the crust area after the first fifteen minutes to keep it from burning. Worked great! Cooked perfectly and set up in 10 minutes afterward. Got tons of compliments. Read More
